£ 8,000 LOST. PONTARDAWE DIS- PUTE. MEN DECIDE TO RETURN TO WORK. The dispute at Messrs. Gilbertson's Works, Pontardawe, in the galvanising de- partment, has been ended, and the men will resume work as early as possible. The decision was come to at the meeting held on Wednesday night at the Victoria Hotel, Pontardawe. The men came out a month ago over a question of seniority, and 14 mills were ren- I acred idle. together with a. thousand men. At the meeting on Wednesday night a letter was received from the company in- timating that they adhered to the conditions laid down at the Swansea conference on Saturday, which was to the effect that the men should resume operations, immediately. The meeting lasted several hours, and eventually it was decided by a majority to return to work. It is estimated that something like L2,000 weekly has been lost in wag es whilst the strike was on. The Dockers' Union Executive ordered the mien to resume work, and on Saturday at a conference held a.t Swansea 15 dele- gates of the men and two of the Dockers' Union officials agreed to recommend the men to ie,-tuine work and utilise the machinery off the board to adjust the disputes over which the strike took place. A meeting of the men on Monday did not accept this recommendation of their Union officials and d,e,lega-t-os. They have now changed their minds and. decided to go back.
